Suspected Cultist Dies In Shootout With Lagos Police
The police have announced the killing of one Olamide Oloruntobi, male, aged 31 years on Tuesday, September 25, 2018, at Ishashi, a suburb of Lagos State.
Regarded as the trouble-maker of the sleepy community, he was shot dead during exchange of gunfire with the police.
Olamide was supposedly the leader of the dreaded Aiye confraternity in the area, and met his Waterloo at Durosooto street, Celenizer, New Mebamu, Ishashi, at about 8.40pm, when the police were alerted that the group, led by the deceased were terrorising residents of the area.
Based on the information, the DPO in charge of Ishashi Division, SP Amuda Abolaji led a team of policemen to the scene.
On arrival, the hoodlums sighted the police team and opened fire.
This led to a hot exchange of gunfire and when the dust settled, Olamide Oloruntobi was found dead.
Meanwhile, his locally made pistol with one live ammunition had been recovered while the corpse had been deposited at the Badagry General Hospital mortuary for autopsy.
The Commissioner of Police, Lagos State, CP Edgal Imohimi has charged the DPO, to do all he can to arrest fleeing members of the gang.
He has equally directed the head of the Intelligence Unit of the Command to assist the DPO in that regard.
The CP said that the death of a cultist is not a thing of joy and called on parents and community leaders to prevail on their children or subjects who are members of these unlawful groups to renounce cultism and surrender their weapons to the police.
He added that he will personally receive them and together with other relevant agencies, ensure their reintegration into the society.You like this story? Share it!
